Riviera ARC will be paying our respects to Her Majesty’s Armed Forces on National Armed Forces Day this Saturday 30th June. We will be operating from Little Haldon, close to the former site of RAF Haldon, a wartime station.
To the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, British Army, and Royal Air Force we give our deepest thanks for their service, past and present.
Just a heads up that Riviera ARC will be running a special event station for Armed Forces Day again this year. This is our way of thanking the men & women past & present for their service in keeping the UK safe.
June 24th is national armed forces day and we will be running again from Little Haldon near Teignmouth. We aim to use GB8AFD and paper qsls will be available.
At the 2016 annual general meeting former Chairman, John Perry M0JNP was awarded an
honorary life membership for his contributions to the Riviera club. John passed his M6 at the
Newton Abbot club and then passed his Intermediate & Advanced licences here at Riviera.
John has always been keen on pitching in at the various special events we run and we look
forward to seeing him at future ones. John runs a local Allstar node from his home in Paignton.
Riviera ARC took part in National Armed Forces day on 27th June 2015 at the Haldon rendezvous site. John 2E0JNP put up the Carolina Window atenna at around 35 feet and G7AHP set up the VHF antenna.
We worked stations as far away as Italy and the Czech Republic as well as numerous UK stations. There are numerous images from the day on the Gallery.
Club chairman John 2E0JNP here is operating on HF while Alan G2DXU keeps the log.
The weather was very kind to us with bright sunshine and little wind. RARC would like to offer our thanks and congratulations to Ian, Ann and Lobster for keeping the team supplied with teas, coffees and hot food.
An outstanding team effort from everyone made for a great special event which I look forward to doing again next year. Well done Team RARC !!
